Old Wives Tales


My good buddy Lauren is currently pregnant with her second kiddo (a girl! eeekkk! so excited!) and before she found out what her #2 was, she posted about some old wives tales with this pregnancy.  I am totes stealing her idea and doing the same thing with this post because 1. I thought it'd be fun 2. I'm almost 28 weeks pregnant, still feeling good, and feel like I've had adequate time to make some judgements on these tales and how they pertain to me 3. it is oh-so-much fun to speculate what #2 is 4. I hope less than 12 weeks from now I look back on this post and see how many of these tales were right and how many were just that--tales.  So, here it goes.

Chinese calendar: 
GIRL

Mayan method (age at conception & year baby was conceived: both even or odd, one even one odd): GIRL

Babble.com's gender predictor quiz:
BOY

heart rate (above 140, below 140): 
GIRL

cravings (sweet, salty): 
GIRL

hair growth on legs (slower, faster): 
GIRL

emotions (moody, even keeled): 
BOY

carrying baby (high, low): 
GIRL

belly (wide, round): 
BOY

skin (breakouts, clear): 
BOY

face (round, lean): 
GIRL

headaches (no, yes): 
GIRL

body temperature (same/warmer, colder): 
GIRL

baking soda test
BOY

dry hands (no, yes): 
BOY

first trimester morning sickness (yesno): 
GIRL

coordination (gracefulclumsy): 
BOY

key test pick-up (pointy endround end): 
BOY

dreams (dreaming about a boydreaming about a girl): 
GIRL

linea nigra - pregnancy tummy vein (non-existent or belly button to pelvisrib cage to pelvis): 
GIRL

pillow direction/side (north/right sidesouth/left side): 
GIRL

mother's intuition (aka my thought): 
GIRL

Total GIRL: 14
Total BOY: 8

Sooooo, according to these, I'm sure, super accurate old wives' tales, it looks like the consensus is that #2 is a GIRL (which is what (right now) I'm speculating this babe is as well).  However, only time will tell (a little less than 12 weeks to go!) what #2 actually is...stay tuned!  And maybe I'll do a follow-up post post delivery evaluating just how accurate these tales were for this babe.  Stay tuned friends.
